Compare with SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute, FakeShemp, TheOtherMarty and ObviousStuntDouble. Contrast with YouLookFamiliar. Can be {{Hand Wave}}d by the LiteraryAgentHypothesis.

This became a notable phenomenon only with the rise of series television. Prior to TV, there was no expectation that a role in a theater production would be played by the same actor. It was -- and is -- assumed that any production of a particular work would seek out whatever actors it wanted for the roles, and a single production can feature different actors in the same role on successive nights.

This is when a new actor is brought on to play the same character as a previous actor who has left the series, with no explanation for the switch given to the audience. [[TropeNamers Named]] for the famous Darrin swap case: Dick York to Dick Sargent, on ''Series/{{Bewitched}}''.

This is a notable phenomenon only with the rise of series television. Prior to TV, there was no expectation that a role in a theater production would be played by the same actor. It was common for a dramatic work to be performed anew for each new audience. It was assumed that any production of a particular work would seek out whatever actors it wanted for the roles. Even an ongoing live performance production could feature multiple actors in the roles.

# the first shot of the new actor will be accompanied by a short {{narrator}} announcement explaining that "the part of (character) will now be played by (new actor)." This is a more common method in {{telenovela}}s.
